In my opinion, it is great if a community has a website dedicate to everything that happens to it. It is true in case of Aitkin County. It is not that difficult to read any news related to it on the Internet. Those who live in Aitkin County should be especially interested in aitkin county news as probably they find it more interesting than somebody who does not live in the county. Having said that, I find such news also interesting even though I do not live anywhere close to the county. This does not prevent me though from reading such websites as they allow me to learn more about communities such as this one.
Why is reading about news so important these days? If you choose not to read about any news at all, you will never know what is happening around you and you will never know how to react to it. You cannot live in total isolation knowing what happens in your county or the world can be very helpful. How can you know for who you should vote if you never follow the news? Following the news is also important if you want to make the best financial decisions for example or even if you want to learn what the weather is going to be the next day.
